Chase Briscoe victory lane interview


CHASE BRISCOE, No. 98 — HighPoint.com/Ford Performance Racing School Ford Mustang — WINNER’S INTERVIEWWE KNOW WHAT YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH, BUT WHAT A WAY TO END THE WEEK WITH A WIN. "Yeah, this is for my wife. This has been the hardest week I’ve ever had to deal with and God is so good. Even when I took the lead with 50 to go I was crying inside the race car and just emotionally I wasn’t there at all. There’s nothing else to say other than God is just so glorious. Obviously, I’m happy to get HighPoint.com and Ford Performance Racing School in victory lane, but this is more than a race win. This is the biggest day of my life after the toughest day in my life, and to be able to beat the best there is is so satisfying."

IT’S BEEN A TOUGH WEEK. "This is the best thing that could happen, honestly. For those that don’t know, we had a miscarraige Tuesday of our daughter and, to be honest with you, I wasn’t sure what racing we would do. At the initial start I was all over the place emotionally, and then when I had the lead with 50 to go I was just making so many mistakes because I was literally crying inside of the race car. God is so good. To be able to do this and it’s all because of Him. Before when I got dressed I prayed that whatever His will is just let it be done today. I knew he was gonna have a high because of the low and it’s just unbelievable to win here at Darlington and to beat Kyle Busch doing it."

TALK ABOUT THE FINAL LAP. "I just kept making a lot of mistakes down there. Like I was saying emotionally I wasn’t there. Getting into one I knew that there was no way he was gonna drive in deeper than me. I wasn’t gonna let it happen. He was gracious enough to at least leave me a little bit of a lane and it was a heck of a race."

WHAT DOES THIS WIN MEAN? "This is the number one win. Honestly, winning the Daytona 500 couldn’t even top the feeling of just, like I was saying earlier, the ups and downs. This is what my family needed and what my wife needed."
